Same-Sex Divorce in NY

All marital unions have the possibility of ending in divorce. When dissolving a same-sex marriage, the divorce proceedings are nearly identical to that of a heterosexual divorce.

The legal issues that same-sex couples face during divorce include:

  • Child support
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Division of property or debts
  • Multi-state and multi-jurisdictional issues
  • Second parent/single parent adoptions

During all divorces, whether same-sex or otherwise, spouses will need to come to an agreement on these legal issues. Our Suffolk County same-sex divorce attorneys can help you and your spouse reach a mutual agreement and avoid court. In the event that you and your spouse cannot come to terms on one or more issues, we can represent your best interests in court and work to get the outcome that you deserve.

For effective legal representation for your same-sex divorce case, call The Law Office of Robert H. Montefusco at (631) 801-0007. Our goal is your best future.

  • THE LAW OFFICE OF ROBERT MONTEFUSCO IS ONE IN A MILLION

    “Robert and his staff have always went above and beyond for me throughout every step of my brutal divorce and custody process. My case is currently still open and we are in 3 court rooms. Robert is exceptionally educated, experienced, and understanding when it comes to matrimonial law. The past 2 years of my life have been the most darkest and at times unbearable because of the mistake I made in choosing the wrong partner. At times, I would call their office literally 3-4 times A DAY panicking, stressing, obsessing, and mostly crying. I never felt I was annoying them or a nuisance; they were ALWAYS there for me. Robert is not only my attorney, many times he acts as my therapist and calms me down and subsides my fears. Maureen was there beside me to sign the papers to file for the hardest decisions of my life and she always helped in making the process as smooth and seamless as possible. Hope is an amazing asset as well. She is always there to answer any questions I have and always was an extra pair of ears for me to vent to. In choosing this law firm you not only get an amazingly experienced attorney, you get a FIGHTER. Robert defends and protects me aggressively and passionately every single court appearance. For the first time in my life I have absolutely NO FEAR walking into the courtrooms ever anymore because HE is by my side. I am confident that I not only have an amazing group of people working on my case every day, but I have found friends for the rest of my life. The words Thank You will never be enough for what each of them have done for me during this difficult time in my life. You guys ROCK!”

  • Mr. Montefusco has the right amount of pitbull in him and uses it when the opportunity requires.

    “Mr. Montefusco and his assistant were and continue to be excellent.”

  • You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda!

    “I was recommended to The Montefusco law firm by a friend who is a lawyer. He told me "You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda"! From the first free consultation (many years ago) to the present day, the entire staff was courteous, punctual, professional, and tolerant. I say that because I can be a tough customer to deal with, and I was never treated that way. I was always given the respect, time, and the opportunity to be heard. Hope and Monica were great on the phones, and taking down my concerns, and relaying them to Robert, Meaghan, or Maureen. I had a particularly rough time with my EX, and I was fighting for the rights of my son, and him now living with me. Robert had my back through the whole process. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome, and the entire team should take a bow! Robert always knew just what to say, and how to calm me down in moments of disbelief in the ongoing battles, and I feel I can include him in my 'inner circle' of friends. Meaghan did a great job of re-writing all of my oppositions, and even took my calls when she was at her home. And last but not least is Maureen. Maureen is a paragon. She could answer every question I had, and always gave me the respect I deserved. She and I got to know each other pretty well on the phones, and through emails. Often times I called to talk to Robert, and Maureen picked up, and helped me through my concerns. Thank you Robert, Meaghan, Maureen, Hope, and Monica! You made a really bumpy road seem navigable, and throughout the process, there was always a shining light at the end of the tunnel!”

  • Robert is not a stranger to arguing a motion. An added benefit that helped with my selection of Robert was his prior background as a Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney.

    “Although I am not an attorney, I deal with a lot of contact, intellectual capital and real-estate attorneys regularly and I’m a pretty good judge of character. Robert’s representation of me was outstanding!”

    Robert D.

  • He's as good as they come, no one will fight harder for you!!

    “If you're going through a divorce do yourself a favor and see this guy!!! He's as good as they come, no one will fight harder for you!!”

    John

  • His passion for his work is unparalleled.

    “He fought for me every step of the way.”

    Genie

  • Honest and trustworthy

    “Honest and trustworthy. Gave great advice and streamlined the process”

    James

  • Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side.

    “I hired Robert Montefusco not one time but two times to represent me for custody of my child Each time I was represented with a favorable outcome. Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side. In a biased court system where the fathers are immediately the underdog , Robert was able to get me a better outcome than most fathers get. For that I highly recommend the Montefusco Law firm.”
